Boozman's O'Keefe problem

Rep. John Boozman, who's mulling over a U.S. Senate run against Sen. Blanche Lincoln, co-sponsored a bill (H.Res. 809) last year to honor "the fact-finding reporting done by Hannah Giles and James O'Keefe III in their investigation in the fraudulent and illegal practices and misuse of taxpayer dollars by the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN)."

You might remember, O'Keefe was arrested Monday in New Orleans and charged with entering federal property under false pretenses with the intention of committing a felony (a.k.a. tampering with Sen. Mary Landrieu's phones).  Some Republicans are running away from O'Keefe.  What does Boozman say?  We've got a call in to his office.
